Welcome to the greatest, most astounding aggregation of theatrical marvels, feats, and monstrosities that ever visited the New World. Ladies and gentlemen, no waiting, no delays. Step right up and enjoy the show...

Shows and events

This Beast is bred for no-holds-barred creative rampage. We blend theater, movement, and object into work that oozes with irreverent humor, poignant drama, sensuality, athletic feats, strange beauty, and naked reality. It's hard to describe, so we made up a name for it: dance circus.

The Beast loves merriment. We think a good production begins before you walk in the door and ends long after you leave. Our shows offer a night out on the town where you can order a drink at the onstage bar and meet new folks. Food and drink events take place at the theater and off-site locations and usually involve stage performances, wandering acts, and installations.

Sweet Beasties kick ass onstage. These peculiar theater organisms have been studied over many years by photographer John Brandon. He adds to his collection every month.
